This Vanessa Paradis doppelgnger by way of the deep south has walked the runways of Celine and Calvin Klein, but may soon be showing up at your nearest multiplex. The 23-year-old gap tooth model has already clocked a commercial for a Loewe fragrance and has her heart in film. We got to know a little about this Georgia Peach with a high fashion face.
